Seal sponsors pursue state grant expansion BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

Friends hold hands to take the plunge into 50-something-degree water Jan. 1 at La Jolla Shores during the La Jolla Cove VILLAGE NEWS | DON BALCH Swim Club’s annual Polar Bear Swim.

Bryan Pease, attorney for the Animal Rescue and Protection League’s (APRL) SealWatch, has begun campaigning for new legislation in an effort to insert three words into a state land grant he says would protect La Jolla’s harbor seal colony and save the city of San Diego millions. Despite ongoing state and federal litigation involving La Jolla’s harbor seal colony, Pease said he may have solved one of the city’s financial problems. “The cleanest solution would be for state legislation to add ‘marine mammal habitat’ to the 1931 tidelands grant,” Pease said. According to Pease, if state officials would add marine mammals to the list of permissible Children’s Pool uses, the

city would save millions from a 2005 ruling requiring ongoing dredging. Pease and seal advocates have asked Senator Christine Kehoe to back the legislation, but Kehoe said she wanted a local resolution. “My hope is that there is a local consensus first — otherwise we take the argument up to Sacramento,” Kehoe said. “I need the council and the mayor and the city council as a whole to give me some direction as to how they want this handled.” Pease has been meeting with San Diego City Council members, including newly elected Council District 1 Sherri Lightner. La Jolla’s Children’s Pool sits inside Lightner’s district. Lightner says she hasn’t made a decision. And before bringing a resolution before the SEE GRANT, Page 3

La Jolla swimmers grin and ‘bear’ it BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

The National Weather Service forecast that the Pacific waters off La Jolla would hover between 54 and 57 degrees last Thursday, Jan. 1, 2009. For hundreds of locals turning out for La Jolla Cove Swim Club’s annual New Year’s Day Polar Bear Swim, the chilly waters are a tradition. “I’m 85 and still alive,” said Cove

Swim Club member Fouad Feretti, hopping spryly out of the water. “So give me five.” Feretti has become something of a swimming mascot among locals. One local rushed to offer the recently emerged Feretti a bowl of chili or cup of cider — another New Year’s swim club tradition. And during La Jolla’s 2008 Rough Water Swim event, Feretti said he achieved something

remarkable. “I came in first [in the 85- to 90year-old age group], but I also came in last,” he said. The swim club doesn’t award prizes during the Polar Bear Swim. About 250 swimmers in Speedos plunged into the icy waters off La Jolla Shores to show — well, that they can. SEE SWIMMERS, Page 4

Surging Bolts electrify SD Colts harnessed at Q; Steelers next BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

Darren Sproles may not get the notoriety of other backs in the NFL, but he doesn’t seem too concerned about that. Sproles rushed for 105 yards on the evening, while scoring the game-winning touchdown (22-yard run) some six minutes into overtime, as the San Diego Chargers scored a 23-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts last Saturday evening in the AFC Wild Card Playoff at Qualcomm Stadium. The win sends San Diego (9-8) to Pittsburgh for this Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoff at 1:30 p.m. PST. Pittsburgh defeated San Diego 11-10 earlier this season at Heinz Field. Trailing 17-14 late in the game, with the Colts only a first down

away from running out the clock, the Chargers made their move. San Diego’s Tim Dobbins sacked QB Peyton Manning back to the Colts 1-yard line for an eight-yard loss on third down to set up a fourth-down punt, which Sproles returned into Indianapolis territory. San Diego QB Philip Rivers moved the Chargers down into scoring territory, where Nate Kaeding delivered a 26-yard field goal to tie it at 17-17 with under a minute left. The Colts were unable to move the ball in the final seconds, setting up Sproles for his heroics. After winning the coin toss, the Chargers were the beneficiaries of some defensive foul calls against VILLAGE NEWS | DON BALCH the Colts, giving San Diego several Charger Darren Sproles rushes ahead of Jeromey Clary for a first down during SEE BOLTS, Page 14 the Jan. 3 Wild Card game vs. the Colts.

Restaurant Week returns; Girl Scouts bring dessert BY LORALEE OLEJNIK | VILLAGE NEWS

Diners can enjoy fine food and stay within their budget as San Diego Restaurant Week, the popular semi-annual culinary event, returns Jan. 11 through 16. About 150 restaurants across the county are participating in this year’s event. Each will feature a special threecourse menu for $20, $30 or $40, depending on location (tax, beverage and gratuity not included, wine and spirit pairings available at some locations for an additional fee).

“While they are getting a three-course meal for just $40 per person, they can expect the exact same quality, preparation style and service they would expect on any other night dining,” said Leslie Araiza-Lorenzo from Nine-Ten restaurant. Araiza-Lorenzo also said Nine-Ten will offer $2 valet parking for the event. The $20 menu is an addition this year and is offered by restaurants such as Mr. Tiki in the Gaslamp Quarter. “Our hope is to inspire guests SEE DESSERT, Page 4

city council, Lightner said Pease may need to go through La Jolla’s planning process to give the public a voice. Last year, Pease fought for the seal colony in federal court, but exhausted his appeals with the city of San Diego. Last month, he won a temporary restraining order in federal court allowing the city to carry out the council’s resolution to install a guideline rope throughout the seal’s pupping season. But a state judge ruled the city must recondition the surrounding area to its 1941 standards, and until the issue is resolved, the city must hire a “seal chaser,” Pease said. “…The heirs of Ellen Browning Scripps, who gave the money to build the seawall, would not take lightly to abolishing the purpose of the trust,” said Paul Kennerson, attorney for Valerie O’Sullivan, the swimmer whose case ended in a ruling forcing the city to dredge the Children’s Pool for swimming. The new legislation would solve the dredging issue and the city would not have to hire a “seal chaser,” according to Pease. Though Pease said he is confident that once the legislation begins at the city level, it would go through to the state, Kehoe said she still had reservations. “We need a local solution that will resolve the issue. To my knowledge, that hasn’t happened yet,” Kehoe said. “I do not have a bill on this topic at this point.” “One of the [council] members would have to sponsor a resolution,” Pease said, adding that harbor seal legislation usually passes through the Natural Resources and Cultures Committee chaired

by District 6 Councilwoman Donna Frye. “If it’s not controversial, it could get passed — otherwise it could get public comment,” Pease said. “It would be a request to the state legislators to add ‘marine mammal habitat’ as a permissible use under the tidelands grant.” Casa Beach, or the Children’s Pool, was among several areas the state gave to the city for certain uses in a 1931 state grant, including “public park, bathing pool for children, parkway, highway, playground and recreational purposes, and to such other uses as may be incident to, or convenient for the full enjoyment of, such purposes,” the statutes stated, adding the right to fish off the waters. “There would be a new bill introduced before the legislature with a slight wording change to the 1931 tidelands grant, the law that conveyed Casa Beach from the state to the city,” Pease said. Kehoe said she needs some “indication from the city” that this is what the people want. But at this point, she said, “I can’t promise — we’re putting the cart before the horse.” For information about the Children’s Pool, visit www.friends ofthechildrenspool.com or www.childrenspool.org. ■

NEWSbriefs Youths with BB guns mistaken for armed men Two youths frightened locals Saturday, when one La Jollan called police after misidentifying a BB gun, causing armed police to respond with the department’s helicopter crew. A resident of the 5700 block of Rutgers Road called police Saturday, Jan. 3, at about 2:45 p.m., reporting an armed 20-year-old male wandering along the road, police spokeswoman Monica Munoz reported in a press release. Police responded, launching the San Diego Police Department helicopter (ABLE), the release stated. “The helicopter crew began to record the incident on video and spotted the suspect on Copa de Oro Drive,” Munoz reported. The resident told police another armed man also was running around, the release said. “One of the suspects ran and hid in front of a house while the other tried to leave the area. The second male was stopped by officers and taken into custody without incident,” police reported. While officers took the second male into custody, police said the ABLE tactical flight officer kept the first male in sight until additional officers arrived and arrested him. Despite the counter-terrorist measures police deployed, the duo did not have real weapons. The juveniles were playing with toy BB guns, police said. “They were detained until it was determined that no crime had taken place,” Munoz reported. Although police released the duo, Munoz said, “it is against California law to carry a replica gun in public (12556PC) unless they are

easily recognizable as replicas.” According to Munoz, citizens can purchase replica toy guns that shoot BBs for less than $15, but manufacturers do make clear plastic guns, which are distinguishable from real guns. “It is never advisable for any individual to carry replica guns in

public because they can be confused with a real gun. In this case, both the citizen and the officers believed that these individuals were carrying real guns,” Munoz reported. SEE NEWS BRIEFS, Page 5

Feretti said he’s been taking the polar bear plunge the past 15 to 20 years. “We have over 20 English Channel swimmers in the club,” La Jolla Cove Swim Club president Bob West said. “It varies from hardcore channel swimmers to the weekend warrior swimmers. We have all kinds of folks who like to jump in the sea.” The club inaugurated its Polar Bear Swim more than 30 years ago when the group was formed, according to West. The chilly swimming tradition began at La Jolla Shores’ Kellogg Park. Though the club first used the Cove years ago, West said the surf was unpredictable and rough, so the swim-

mers moved to calmer waters at the Shores. Traditionally, the swim should be performed in swimsuits only, but some people wear wetsuits and that’s OK, West said. “A majority of the people who do the swim, swim year-round in the Cove,” West said. “I think our youngest member is 12 and our oldest is around 90.” The swim started New Year’s Day at 10 a.m. The swim club served refreshments, including hot apple cider and chili.

Many of the nearly 7,200 restaurants in San Diego County are feeling the pinch in the current economy as San Diegans struggle with rising unemployment rates and home foreclosures. Many potential patrons have put their fine dining habits on ice as of late.

Several restaurants will feature special dessert recipes inte-

We think Girl Scout cookies in an ice cream sundae will make people feel good and satisfy them,” said Michel Malecot, owner of The French Gourmet.

Make the road safer and saner in 2009 New Year’s resolutions for drivers COURTESY RESPONSE INSURANCE

Meriden, CT — At this time of year, everyone hopes to close the book on bad habits and resolve to do better. Experts agree that many people break their New Year’s resolutions because they set unrealistic goals for themselves. However, there are common driving behaviors that drivers can resolve to improve for this New Year that are not only attainable but can make it a safer year for everyone. “Bad driving is often just a habit you get into,” said Ray Palermo, director of public relations for Response Insurance. “It can take as few as 21 days for people to adopt a new habit. So, drivers can help ensure that 2009 is safe for themselves and others on the road in a relatively short period of time.” He offered a few New Year’s Resolutions for drivers: • Use your turn signal. Letting other drivers know where you are heading avoids crashes. • Stay calm. Don’t compound another driver’s foolish driving maneuver by making your own. Don’t overreact to events that can lead to road rage. • Know where you are going. And if you do make a

wrong turn, just keep going. More often than not, you can return to the correct road pretty quickly and do it without endangering others. • Maintain your car. Check all fluid levels, change the oil if it’s due, clean the car’s windshield, windows and headlights, make sure your lights and directionals are working properly, check the tire tread and air pressure. • Sleep. Rest can be your best defensive driving weapon. Long hours behind the wheel, particularly at night, make you drowsy, less alert to danger and increase your response time. • Stop multi-tasking. Eating, reading and talking on a cell phone (even hands-free) while driving are distracting. • Never drink and drive. And be alert for drivers who may not be as safe as you. • Get an emergency kit. A first-aid kit should minimally include bandages, tape, wash and dry cloth and a topical antiseptic. A car kit should include oil, anti-freeze, transmission and brake fluids, basic tools, signal flare, flashlight (with fully charged batteries) and duct tape. Additional information on this and other car and homeowner topics is available at the Response Insurance Safety Information Center: www.response.com/safety. ■

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A warm glow

als don’t have children, they can put more money into their causes. Adopting children is one of their causes and many believe it is their right. If I had the ability, I would legally prevent this situation from happening to another child the way I had to experience it. America is struggling to make The Beach Bums sense of minority control and Christ Lutheran Church now homosexual rights. We need to get back on a healthy track and start focusing on all of our citizens.

Thank you to the anonymous donor for saving the fire pits throughout San Diego’s beaches and Mission Bay. We are one of the many groups and families that enjoy sitting around a warm fire enjoying friends and fellowship.

The token child I am so sorry that Proposition 8 has caused such a problem. I am sorry that people see homosexual marriage as a right. First of all, God ordained marriage between a man and a woman. The more we have abused this rule, the more problems we have as a society. I am surprised that people believe that rights are more important than God’s commandments. I personally have lived with a homosexual parent and I wouldn’t wish this problem on anyone. I was the token child since he couldn’t make one normally. I took his name even without adoption. My mother was the unsuspecting token wife and he made it hard for her to leave without complications. Our society is forced by minority groups to be what they want us to be and to think what they want us to think. We don’t need to feel sorry for these people and we don’t need to be their token guilt partners either. Since homosexu-

may require.” This constitution belongs to “we the people” and not they the legislature nor they the court. It establishes protections against their tyranny and we the people have changed our constitution more than any other state for this very reason. When the legislature or judiciary gets too out of touch, they no longer serve the people. They are accountable to us, not us to them as much as they would hope it not to be so. We the people of California made clear in the most recent election that we understand marriage well. We comprehend that current law is quite clear that same-sex couples have the same rights as the rest of society. We also appreciate that marriage has its origins in religion. It is considered to be a sacred union sanctified by God. Our constitution is quite explicit in providing for the free enjoyment of religion without discrimination. The issue before the voters therefore was quite simple — it was that of “we the people” providing a definition to the judiciary and legislature of the term marriage so they would know how to govern. Agendas, be they legislative or judicial, cannot nor will not be tolerated. We the people have spoken — and rest assured that we will speak again. Government works for us. The freedoms are ours. We are fiercely protective. Al Sargeant La Jolla

One could describe Kitima as unique, extraordinary and superb, and still fall short of describing it properly. Located in San Diego’s artistic Hillcest area and also overlooking the water in La Jolla, Kitima takes pride in serving authentic Thai cuisine using only fresh and natural ingredients. The menu features an impressive array of organic vegetarian, seafood, poultry and pork entrees. Several house specialties , such as the Evil Prince (fresh prawns steeped in red curry sauce), sets the standard by which all Thai cuisine should be judged. The desserts are homemade, including the wildly popular coconut ice cream. The dinning room, design b owner/artchitect/chef Troy Bushykanist, features a beautiful blend of Asian sculptures and colorful wall murals, giving it a refreshingly relaxed feel. The service (led by Troy and his wife Kitima) is excellent, and guests immediately feel at home in the intimate and romantic atmosphere.

What better way to start off the new year than with a tale of the La Jolla Newcomers gala? Last week in this column there were two photos and herewith are the rest. It was a glittery affair, replete with two handsome Marines (in the aforementioned photos) who guarded the new, boxed, unwrapped toys, destined for the hands of children who otherwise might have had a bleak Christmas, and assorted recycled shiny silver table centerpieces, selected from the extensive collection of Joni Alpert, which she uses time and again for such occasions. Not visible is the redecoration of rooms at the home of the Crossroads Foundation, a group that helps women attain sobriety, and has become the new charitable undertaking of LJN. One thing that is not so new is their membership; the very name “newcomers” alludes to newly arrived La Jollans but there are no hard and fast rules about what constitutes one nor are there any limitations on how long they can remain members. That’s why there were so many familiar faces, dating back many years, in the gala crowd, plus a few new ones who have been local residents for eons but perhaps never got around to registering. Maybe they found out how fun this group is, so, La Jollans, it’s never too late! Check out their assorted activity groups, going far beyond the toy collections and Crossroads.

‘Valkyrie’ captures intense moment in world history BY JAMES COLT HARRISON | VILLAGE NEWS

“Valkyrie” is an exciting new look at a moment in history, which could have changed the direction of World War II. Director Bryan Singer (“The Usual Suspects”) and screenwriters Christopher McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander have extensively researched a plot to assassinate Nazi leader Adolf Hitler by his own officers, led by Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, as portrayed by Tom Cruise. The actor bears an uncanny resemblance to the real military man, and seems to be perfectly cast. Because this is a true story, the filmmakers had to be accurate and please the living relatives of the German colonel. Permission to film the story was not easily granted, as the family closely guards the colonel’s image. He’s somewhat of a hero. The film depicts the plot to kill Hitler on July 20, 1944. Von Stauffenberg had devised Operation Valkyrie, a shadow government that would take over if Hitler were killed during the war. Hitler himself approved the scheme and considered von Stauffenberg one of his loyal officers. But the colonel was beginning to see the terrible things the Nazis were doing and became disgruntled. He joined the secret German Resistance and devised a plot to get rid of the maniacal Nazi Fuhrer. There had been at least 15 attempts by others to kill the murderous man with the funny little moustache. Even Charlie Chaplin tried to “kill” Hitler through laughter in “The Great Dictator” by making fun of him. Surprisingly, none of the attempts worked, even those by people who had easy access to the leader. Unfortunately, he had the nine lives of a cat. Cruise plays von Stauffenberg competently, making sure he remains a hero to the country and not a villain. Hitler was the villain,

and many of the officers were beginning to realize he made insane decisions and was ruining not only the country but the military as well. Although more than 200 people were hanged after the aborted attempt, and more than 700 were arrested, the film concentrates on only a few of the officers who plotted the coup. Joining Cruise in the film are Kenneth Branagh as Major General Tresckow, the ambitious General Fromm as played by Oscarwinner Tom Wilkinson and Terrence Stamp, who plays General Beck, an officer who resigned early in 1938 to protest against Hitler. Also doing a terrific job are comic Eddie Izzard in a serious role, Bill Nighy, German superstar Thomas Kretschmann, David Bamber as Hitler and newcomer Carice van Houten as Mrs. von Stauffenberg. It’s a good ensemble cast and they do the best they can with characters that are not fully fleshed out. The officers are all upset with Hitler, but the real reason they want to participate in the assassination is not fully clear, unless they all have the same reason as Cruise’s character. This is unlikely, but they did have a common bond that seemed to propel them headlong into what they knew would be a disaster if they failed. It’s an amazing thriller even though we know the outcome. It takes some expert directing and writing to sustain interest in a subject when we know the ending. But that didn’t stop “Titanic,” which became the biggest grossing film of all time. It doesn’t hurt “Valkyrie” either, and it is a fine film that keeps one on the edge of the seat. Others in the cast are Stephen Fry, Thomas McNally and Christian Berkel. It was filmed at Babelsberg Studios in Germany, in Berlin and in California’s Cougar Buttes desert, which stood in for Tunisia. MGM/ United Artists. ■

Cagers take to hardwood over holiday break BY DAVE THOMAS | VILLAGE NEWS

Several local scholastic boys basketball teams took to the hardwood over the holiday break in area tournament action. La Jolla High under head coach

Kamal Assaf heads into play this week with a 6-7 record. After meeting University City High on Tuesday, the Vikings are slated to play at neighborhood rival Bishop’s School on Friday night at 7 p.m. “We are playing everyone com-

petitively — we have defended well against a quality non-league schedule,” Assaf noted. “We are looking forward to a great league season.” La Jolla played in the MaxPreps Holiday Classic over the Christmas break, scoring wins over Francis

Parker (51-34) and Bingham (5141), with losses to Palm Desert (4340) and Temecula Valley (62-52). In the win over Francis Parker, Alec Giusti paced La Jolla with 19 points, while John Walsh and Jack Latta led the way in the win over Bingham with 13 and 12 points, respectively. At The Bishop’s School, the Knights head into action this week with a record of 9-3. In action at the Las Vegas Prep Tournament to end December, Bishop’s tallied victories over Las Vegas Mountain View Christian (67-33), Clovis North (66-44) and Sherman Oaks Buckley (68-60). Malik Love and David Stotelmyre led the way over Sherman Oaks Buckley with 26 and 18 points. La Jolla Country Day (LJCD)

School comes into play this week at 9-4 following action in the Coronado Islander Tournament. The Torreys scored wins over Lutheran (79-19) and San Ysidro (76-37), with losses to Oceanside (60-49) and Anaheim Katella (6356). LJCD had five players in double figures in the victory over Lutheran, with Max Hershfield leading the way with 16 points. Finally, University City High enters play this week at 10-2, having competed in the Surf ’N’ Slam Tournament over the holidays. UC registered wins over Tracy Merrill West (50-39) and Snoqualmie Mount Si (69-57), with a 68-64 loss to Conestoga. David Washington tallied 23 points for UC in the victory over Snoqualmie Mount Si. ■

first downs, and allowing the home team to move farther into Indianapolis territory. Sproles, who along with kickoff and punt returns saw more time on this evening as a result of a groin injury to running back LaDainian Tomlinson, then capped off the comeback. The former Kansas State star emerged from the pack and raced 22 yards into the end zone, sending Indianapolis home again courtesy of the Chargers for the second straight January. While Sproles got the most notable play of the night, it was also the efforts of punter Mike Scifres that kept San Diego, a 23-20 loser to Indianapolis (12-5) in the regular season, in the game. Scifres landed six punts inside the 20-yard line on the evening, including a 67-yard boomer, to force Manning and Co. to go long on drives. One drive where the Colts went long was when San Diego’s defense

appeared to fall asleep. With nearly eight minutes remaining in the third quarter, Manning caught the Chargers in a defensive switch, leaving defensive back Antonio Cromartie in the dust. Manning hit wide receiver Reggie Wayne for a 72-yard strike, giving the Colts their final lead of the night at 17-14. San Diego’s defense, however, bottled up the Colts for the most part the remainder of the night to set up the Sproles heroics. “When I got the hand-off, I saw the end slant in,” Sproles said. “Once I saw the end slant in, I saw the green grass outside and I just went for the score.” The score set off a wave of celebrations at the Q, and sends San Diego off to battle the Steelers. As for Manning (25-of-42 for 310 yards, 1 TD) and the Colts, it was the second straight disappointing January. “The Chargers made the plays when it counted. Give them credit,” Manning commented. The question is: Can the Chargers do it two weeks in a row? ■

Bird Rock Home Tour tickets on sale Jan. 14 BY ALYSSA RAMOS | VILLAGE NEWS

Bird Rock Coffee Roasters will begin selling tickets on Jan. 14 for Bird Rock Community Council’s (BRCC) third annual home tour. BRCC members will host the home tour Saturday, Jan. 24, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in an effort to raise funds for Bird Rock Elementary School. Tickets are $20 for BRCC members and $25 for nonmembers. This year, locals can tour six Bird Rock homes, according to BRCC board member Michelle Fulks. “It’s a fantastic community event where people can tour [local]

homes,” Fulks said. “A lot of people do it as a hobby … other people do it to get ideas to remodel or to decorate their own home.” While this year’s homes don’t have any historical designation, attendees will view a mix of remodeled and original cottages, Fulks said. The BRCC does not disclose the home locations, Fulks said, so people attending the tour must pick up maps at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, 5627 La Jolla Blvd. For more information, visit birdrock.org or call (858) 7758500. To purchase tickets, go to Bird Rock Coffee Roasters. ■

San Diego Boat Show drops anchor BY LAURIE SMITH | VILLAGE NEWS

Avast ye, mateys! The 21st annual San Diego Boat Show sails into town today, Jan. 8, and will dock through Jan. 11 at the San Diego Convention Center. Show manager Jeff Hancock declared that the event is for everybody and anybody — “people who own boats, people who want to own boats and people who just

want to look at boats.” And this year, like no other, it’s also for the eco-minded. The show, largest of its kind on the West Coast, features hundreds of vendors and local dealers, showcasing the latest in boats, gear and accessories — at the best deals — from kayaks to mega-yachts and everything that goes with them, Hancock said. “Think of the show like a

supermarket,” he said. “If you went to all these dealers individually, it would take a month of Sundays to see everything [offered in the show]. It would be impossible.” The show takes place at the convention center and behind it at the Marriott Marina, featuring outdoor events, including free sailboat rides and the SEE BOAT SHOW, Page B·6

In typical Holiday Bowl fashion, an offensive shootout emerged. When all was said and done last Tuesday evening, Dec. 30, the 15thranked Oregon Ducks (10-3) scored a 42-31 victory over the 13thranked Oklahoma State Cowboys (9-4) in the 31st edition of the game at Qualcomm Stadium in front of nearly 60,000 fans. While Oregon’s defense stood out in the end, so did Ducks QB Jeremiah Masoli. Masoli, who was named the game’s Offensive MVP, tallied three touchdowns (1, 41 and 17 yards) on the ground and tossed another (20 yards), while Oregon’s defense stiffened in the fourth quarter to give the Ducks their second Holiday Bowl win (defeated Texas in 2000). Defensive back Jairus Byrd was named the game’s Defensive MVP, thanks in part to a huge 39-yard interception return. Neither offense was shy about piling up the yards, as the Ducks (565 yards) and Cowboys (469 yards) totaled more than 1,000 yards combined. With Oregon clinging to a 35-31 lead with three minutes remaining

Green grow the grasses beneath the waves BY JUDITH LEA GARFIELD | VILLAGE NEWS

Considering that grasses now represent about 20 percent of Earth’s vegetational cover, it may not be so surprising that some grasses saw the future and chose not to compete. Our local surfgrass (Phyllospadix scouleri) and eelgrass (Zostera marina) species, though not true grasses, are thought to have evolved from terrestrial plants that invaded the sea 140 to 40 million years ago. In

other words, though all land plants first evolved from the sea, seagrasses returned to their roots, as it were. Being true-rooted, flowering plants (kelp and other algae have no such characteristics), seagrasses self-pollinate, then eject their seeds while completely submerged. While many people have trouble telling surfgrass from eelgrass, there are clear distinctions. Surfgrass is found where surf and rocks abound. During low tides it may be exposed to air

where the brilliant, shiny emeraldgreen strands, which grow to 4 feet tall, densely carpet nearshore rocks and boulders. Under the water’s surface, tidal surge and swell whip up the long blades to shape them into verdant wave shapes that mimic the look of water waves. The lush grass copes with its turbulent surroundings via each individual strand’s awesome anchoring powers. Each strand’s Surfgrass bonds its roots to solid substrate to hold sway in a turbulent environSEE GRASSES, Page B·2 ment (here featuring a shimmering garibaldi). © 2009 JUDITH LEA GARFIELD

base comprises tangled, brown roots that weld like concrete to rock substrate. The individual, compressed (1/16-inch wide) blades flex easily with little resistance. Shapewise, surfgass strands somewhat resemble fine spaghettini noodles. When I enter the water at the Cove and a set of waves rolls in, I dive down and grab onto a hunk of surfgrass, confident that I won’t be washed back to shore. It’s a strategy that works every time. Contrarily, eelgrass generates tranquil, grassy islands or oases in the white sand expanse off La Jolla Shores. Growing in bundles on the sheltered bottom at 25 to 50 feet deep, individual blades grow to 3 feet tall and measure 1/8-inch wide. Shapewise, eelgrass strands somewhat resemble flat, wide fettuccini noodles. The stem of each bundle is loosely submerged in sand, where it is further anchored by many fine roots. Although eelgrass grows well beyond the breaking waves, surge from heavy surf may uproot these delicately positioned plants so beach walkers may see some wash in. As with all plant life, seagrasses provide food and substrate to a variety of animals. Like many local plants at this season, seagrasses are also not in bloom. Come summer, they will send up flowers but none that are colorful or fragrant because, as self-pollinators, they have no need to attract birds or bees. To find surfgrass flowers, move in close and wade through the strands to discover singular green blades with individual brown seedpods attached. To locate eelgrass flowers, maintain some distance and look for

This eelgrass island (above) is made up of numerous generations that hark back to one plant. Each plant’s roots sit loosely in the sandy substrate. Seeds of the next generation of eelgrass plants are ready to make their debut (above, right). No need for birds or bees — the self-contained surfgrass flower self-pollinates (right).

seedpod structures that project a foot above the grass meadows themselves. Once seagrass seeds have developed, the pods burst open and the numerous seeds pop out, drop down and root within 3 feet of where they were ejected. This is a particularly good trick for grasses in the surfzone. The reseeding method is not obvious for surfgrass because of its rocky and otherwise chaotic environment, but it explains why eelgrass forms distinct islands. Each island is composed of a solitary plant, its progeny, their progeny and so on. Seagrasses are an important food source for many animals such as snails, some fish, birds and mammals, and they play a critical role in providing a safe haven for various animals to hide, hunt and reproduce. Cormorant birds use

surfgrass to build their nests, as can be seen in their rookery area above the caves. These attributes aside, we want to be mindful of seagrasses because their sensitivity to pollution makes them an excellent barometer of the health of the nearshore environment. — Judith Lea Garfield, biologist and underwater photographer, has authored two natural history books about the underwater park off La Jolla Cove and La Jolla Shores. www.judith.garfield.org.

opinion, when Q. Inwillyour stocks bounce back? If you consider your portfolio to be a longA. term investment – at least 5 – 7 years or more, don’t overact and do what so many people have done – panic selling. Panic selling decisions may force investment managers to sell good stocks or forego attractive purchases to meet liquidation requests. And as you should remember, for every seller there must be a buyer… and big drops in the market can be great buying opportunities. Selling, “going to cash” and waiting for a new

bull market to rescue any losses may be an exercise in futility. No one can predict with accuracy when the turnaround will come or how robust it will be when it does. Human nature is often in conflict with successful investing. Those who continue to invest in today’s market are essentially snapping up stocks & real estate during a 40% off sale as compared to the peaks in 2007. This may be a great opportunity to rebalance your portfolio since your asset allocation is likely off-kilter. The mix in your portfolio should match your personal goals & objectives, risk tolerance and time horizon. Don’t panic when the markets seem to be falling apart and forget about sitting on the sidelines with your longterm investments. You can’t control the markets – but you can control your reaction to it. Remember, crisis plus fear may equal opportunity. As always, please let us know if we can be of assistance.

yard scamper early in the fourth quarter. According to OSU head coach Mike Gundy, who helped lead the Cowboys as a quarterback to the 1988 Holiday Bowl title, “Oregon was much more physical in the second half than we were on both sides of the ball.” Oregon was also proficient at scoring in the final 30 minutes, outscoring the Cowboys 35-14. The Ducks dedicated the win to Todd Doxey, a redshirt freshman from San Diego who died last summer when he drowned in Oregon’s McKenzie River. “Coming back here, knowing we were going to play in San Diego, was very special to a lot of our players,” Oregon head coach Mike Bellotti noted. ■

Why People Do Not Join Health Clubs With the amount of information available today promoting the benefits and importance of regular exercise, more than 80% of population does not exercise regularly.

Seeing Spots? Now that summer is over have you noticed hyperpigment (brown spots/areas) on your skin? Annoying isn’t it and how did it get there anyway?

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, hunker down and focus all of your attention on work this week. There will be time for partying later when all of your responsibilities have been met. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Nervous energy has you looking for a new project, Taurus. It could be just what the doctor ordered to get your mind off of other things. Ask Scorpio to help out. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, if you're thinking about a new relationship, consider adopting a pet. This could be exactly what you need for a little extra companionship. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. Whatever you've been doing in excess, you need to slow it down. Ask for friends to provide some other stimulation. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 With so much going on in the financial realm, it pays to take inventory of your spending and saving, Leo. Now is the time to get your finances in check so you'll be prepared. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, there's been a lot of turmoil in your life the last few months. But this week something will occur that will take away a lot of the stress. Peace of mind is on the horizon. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Explore deeper relationships with family members and it can be a win-win situation for you and everyone involved. A new pet can bring trouble into the household. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Is money ruling the day, Scorpio? It could be time to take a better look at your priorities. You may find some answers to your problems if you shift the focus off of your finances. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you're reaching new heights at work. The trouble is, you're not feeling so great about all of the success. Maybe you need to reevaluate your career path. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, family concerns leave you feeling nervous. The way around them is to talk things over with friends. Sometimes just talking can make you feel better. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 There's a lot of drama going on at home, Aquarius. But avoiding the situation won't make it go away. You have to stick it out and find the silver lining to this cloud. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Surround yourself with lots of friends, Pisces. This will put and keep a smile on your face this week. Sagittarius wants to join the fun.
